Overview

"From timber country to Silicon Forest, the face of Oregon's labor force has changed dramatically over the last 150 years. Today the seeds planted by pioneers continue to bear fruit, producing jobs and wages to keep Oregon families growing and prospering. Tom Fuller and Art Ayre capture unique stories of Oregon's working men and women in Oregon at Work: 1859-2009." Fuller and Ayre paint a rich picture of Oregon's ever-changing workforce. Drawing from their meticulous research, the authors provide personal histories, historical data, and over 100 photographs. Oregon at Work begins with a wide-angle view of three 50-year periods in Oregon history, and then narrows the focus on specific industries and individual stories. Discussions include the roles of Native American tribes and minority workers in the shaping of Oregon's economy, as well as labor in our present time.

    History Lovers Alert: You'll Like This Book

    Oregon at Work 1859-2009
    Tom Fuller and Art Ayre ©2009
    Ooligan Press
    Portland State University
    Portland, OR 97207
    ISBN 978-1-932010-27-5
    Ppbk. 170 pp. plus resources and index

    Fuller and Ayre not only wrote a history of occupations in Oregon during two hundred years, but also added stories of people involved. These personal histories, including about several generations of certain families add greatly to the readability of a well-written book. The authors chose a good mix of jobs found in Oregon during those years. Oregon at Work will interest history buffs and also regular readers of good books.

    The 8.5 by 11 inch pages allow clear pictures of certain occupations, scenes and workers over the decades. Brief charts of various costs and wages from different ages bring the conditions of life alive and add to the pleasure of the accounts.
